    Edited the OP and 2nd post. Argentina provided the biggest fight, and they still lost by 21 points. Anthony and Lebron looked good... check that, everyone looked good. We play Spain in the gold medal match.. It might be closer than the 30+ point beating we gave em.. but prolly not by much

    Hats off to Spain, hell of a game.

    It's not that I've never seen a closer or better game but I don't think I would have feared losing a game more than this game. Great job from Team USA.

    I thought Wade had a great tournament. I thought he played a key role. Best player to come off the bench for the U.S. Spain played great but the Kobe 4 point play will be my future wallpaper.

    that was sick... no question about it. Spain played really well though, so you have to give them their props... I'm just happy i don't have to listen for another 4 years from my European friends that American basketball is on the wayside, not as good, etc.

    I thought Wade played great and Bosh played better than what I expected.

    Congrats on the gold, you deserved it all along, but I´m glad we gave our real potential when it mattered.

    So, what do you guys think now about Ricky Rubio?
    Was I rigth to say he could be a potential first round draftee? (sadly the post is no longer available)
